Here is Minnesota's COVID-19 update for Sunday, June 7

Hospital numbers are the lowest they've been in nearly a month.

Sixteen more people have died from COVID-19 in Minnesota, according to Sunday's update from the Department of Health, though the key metric of keeping the hospitals from overflowing continues trending in a positive direction. 

For the first time since May 13, there are fewer than 200 (199) COVID-19 patients in intensive care. The ICU total reached a high point of 263 COVID-19 patients on May 30 but has been steadily falling for the past eight days. 

The total number of patients currently in the hospital with the disease caused by the novel coronavirus is down to 450, which is the lowest it has been since it was at 434 on May 10. 

Testing levels continue to be high, with just shy of 11,000 tests conducted in the 24 hour period.

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 344,203 (up from 333,484)
  • Confirmed cases: 27,886 (up from 27,501)
  • Deaths: 1,186 (up from 1,170)
  • Still hospitalized: 450 (down from 473)
  • Patients in intensive care: 199 (down from 206).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 22,992 (up from 22,253)

There have been 11 patients deemed to have "probably" died from COVID-19, though that total isn't included in the aforementioned death toll. Those cases represent victims who never received a COVID-19 test, but for whom doctors believe within a reasonable degree of certainty that the virus caused their death.

Meanwhile, health officials are encouraging anyone who attended protests in recent days to go in for a COVID-19 test, and they recommend doing so whether you have symptoms or not.
